Changed my stabilizer bar end links today while I had the car jacked up to service the front wheel bearings, cleaned and repacked the drivers side with no issue. the inside passenger side bearing sounded link a glass jar full of nails when I shook it, upon the advice of my FIL I had my wife pickup a new bearing on the way home from work. hope to get it installed 2moro morning and get a test drive in before my helper needs a nap and I have to go to work.

Still lots to learn about cars but another two successfull first attempts today

Grr noise is still there after a test drive, I can hear it above 45mph durring acceleration or cruising, but not deceleration.

My friend suggested checking the drive shaft and trans mount, and after some googling now I'm wondering maybe its the front end alignment I know we need one. Her dad also suggested to check the tie rod ends. Anyone have other suggestions?

Hopefully they help you Faron, pictures always help me




Going to try and rwplace the trans mount today, after jacking gently on the tail shaft it looks like the rubber and steel have separated

Angry

Frustrating day, carquest didn't call all week so I called them and the mount was in, awesome, had my wife pick it up on the way home from work.

Go to install it after spending 45min trying to get the 3 mount bolts out and the 2 crossmember bolts out around the exhaust and its not the right mount!
Must be the cruise-o-matic mount, our car has a c6.

The holes in the mount are about 3/4" to far apart, will take the new mount back and try and get the correct one ordered locally

Most auto stores only show the COM motor mount. Even Rockauto doesn't show the correct C6 mount. You may have to order it from one of the Thunderbird vendors like Mac's. They have the correct one in stock.

The mounts look identical except for the hole spacing. I imagine you could elongate the holes in the COM mount to fit the C6 if you don't want to wait.

That might have worked but if it didn't I would be out the 15$ and still have to buy the right one.

I ordered from macs this morning and got an email it was shipped this afternoon.
